  • The building is beautiful, the truth is that it is very old and is very well preserved. The spectacular library, has very old books. Unfortunately the space dedicated to exhibitions is very small, I was impressed that they have so little about the war of the Pacific. The archaeological exhibition was closed, but mining is very cute.

  • The Museum is super interesting, be covered in less than an hour. Everything is indoors, except the capsule of the 33 miners. It is free, and you can leave a tip. There are things about the time of the war of the Pacific: costumes, weapons, among other things, and also relics of the ancient mining of the area. With respect to the miners, is the paper "we are 33 well". It is the original. It is also the capsule in the courtyard. It is also the original. If you see another in chile, it is an imitation. There is a schedule (only in Spanish) very well explained how the events took place. One will be reading each of the events and supported with graphics for better understanding. Unfortunately, they were repairing 2 rooms when we went, but likewise is a good overview.

  • It could be better exploited. The Museum is well located but there are few things that you see. The capsule that the 33 miners rescued them is there but should be mining! You can go there outweighs the excitement. The Museum used to have a brief idea two facts! And there, em mining, there are videos and even one of the rescued miners! But the regional Museum is worth the visit to know parts of history and regional fauna.

  • A space that preserves part of the history material of one of the main mining regions of the country. Completely free where you can see to the Phoenix 2 capsule used in the rescue of the 33 in the mine San Jose, Copiapó

Where to stay in Copiapo

The most popular places to stay are just north of Copayapu/Route 5, with the rest of the town primarily residential. The town's pretty boutique hotels offer private pools and gardens, while simple, family-run guesthouses provide fewer frills but charge considerably less. If you're planning to use the town as a base for desert explorations, consider staying in a rented apartment.
